There seems to be a `significant other'/wife switch that can be thrown remotely at the Wine-Searcher site whenever one's wine budget is being strained by cases and cases of wine arriving at the front door.

It is even thought that UPS/Fed Ex drivers cooperate with said `significant other/wives' to toggle this switch after some critical mass of wine shipping/purchasing has been reached.

Beware........:wink:

Howard, ever use WineZap? I don't think it's better, but it has different clients and sometimes finds things that Winesearcher doesn't.

No, I've never used it.
I'll check it out.

Thanks
Hear that sound? It's the sound of even more of my hard earned bucks flying out of my wallet :D

WOOOSH!

Ha! Ours, too. I actually decided last week (after relieving a certain Vancouver retailer of his supply of Arcadian pinots) that I was going to absolutely no way, no how buy any more wine for at least a month. There wasn't anything I needed as much as I need to drink some of the wine I have.

That lasted about two days.

Jenise, do you mean better than Wine-Searcher Pro or the freebie Wine-Searcher?
